Baseball fans are devoted to their teams, but none more than the fans who follow the Boston Red Sox. Children grow up hearing about the early players who are long gone, but their legends live on. This book is all about the fans, written by the fans. It's a collection of stories and thoughts of fans from all over the world who want to share their feelings about their favorite team. A common theme is the number of years between winning the World Series and the agony they lived with year after year, always hoping THIS is the year, only to be heartbroken again. Then, in 2004, they won their first World Series in 86 years. This book tells of elderly people who didn't think they'd live to see it and grown children who decorated their parent's graves with Red Sox memorabilia when they finally won the World Series. Fans getting to meet their idols, listening to the games on the radio late into the night, sneaking into Fenway Park and play after play that has stayed in the minds of fans for years - these are just some of the stories told in this entertaining book.
